Fredic Brussat: Every once and a while a book comes along that has us uttering exclamation marks of agreement out loud as we read. It's Really All About God is one of those treasures!

These are words from a book review of the book It's Really All About God: Reflections of a Muslim Atheist Jewish Christian by Samir Selmanovic. The review is by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat.

The Brussat's write:

Samir Selmanovic is a founder and Christian co-leader of Faith House Manhattan, an interfaith "community of communities" that brings together forward-looking Christians, Muslims, Jews, atheists and others who seek to thrive interdependently. He is also the director of a Christian community called CityLights and serves on the Interfaith Relations commission of the National Council of Churches and speaks nationally and internationally.

This iconcoclastic, prophetic, and enlightening book charts his unusual spiritual journey while also offering startling insights into the contemporary religious scene. Selmanovic speaks with clarity and poignancy to traditional Christians, to activists in the interfaith movement, to believers in the emerging spiritual but not religious movement, and to seekers of all stripes. He covers an amazing amount of territory and, better than most, makes sense of the twists and turns of spirituality in this time of transitional change.
